Just another day in Skyrim: The Married Life/ Tamriel's Dumbest Criminals.
Greetings all! I just had a funny thing happen in Skyrim that makes me want to go out and do one of those live action movies that have been popping up. So I joined the Companions became a werewolf etc. Well I also happened to marry Aela the Huntress. What happened next? Well...
There I was, coming home after a long dungeon stroll attempting to unearth an Elder Scroll. I just wanted to come home, ask my wife for gold, make her cook me something, then drop off all my loot. I got home and my loving wife is nowhere to be found. I was very sad. Such is life when married to the leader of a werewolf mercenary troop. So I went to pore over my workbench and see if there were any additions that could be made to the house. When suddenly out of the darkness bandits attack! Oh no they killed my cow! Again! And my horse! Again. Damn them! So I get all big, bad angry Dragonkin on them and dispatch the ungulate-murdering ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. As I'm looting the chief, I find a note. -insert other fluff text here- "If you want to see your wife again come to Embershard mine with 5000 gold." I chuckle to myself. One of the leaders of the Companions. Werewolf. Married to a Dragonkin. Yep. Just who I'd want to kidnap. What could possibly go wrong?
So, I saddle up(or at least I would have if the world's dumbest bandits hadn't killed my horse) and head to Embershard mine to rescue my loving wife.
I arrive at Embershard around dusk, ready my bow, get my stealth on, and head inside. Just in time to see Aela strolling toward the exit surrounded by a pile of corpses as if nothing ever happened.
"Hello Love" is all she has to say.
And I think to myself. "That's my girl."
So I asked her for gold, and made her cook me something, then continued through the mine to loot corpses.
I can imagine that conversation...
"Gee honey, you could have left some for me..."
And so ends todays episode of Tamriel's Dumbest Criminals.
